be making a bigger case about taxes, spending, shoot for the mountains and not get dragged down on what he says is clearly democrats and the president's turf. >> we have to focus, steve, i believe republicans -- i've said it time and time again -- on taxes. on cutting spending. on saving entitlements. on saving america from this crushing national debt. it grew $6 trillion under barack obama over the past term. and try to avoid some of these other issues. but i hear bobby jindal's new federalism on crack talking about cutting federal employees by three-quarters, et cetera, et cetera. that ain't going to happen. with the changing demographics and where america is and where it's going over the next 20 every 30 years. >> that's the issue. if you separate it, i think the first part not being the stupid party anymore is sort of a no-brainer. why would you go around insulting important interest groups. >> women. >> yeah, the 47%, all that stuff. but then you get to his policy proposals, and i don't think he's in the mainstream of this country when you talk about 25% of the government buildings, c

be sure to see a litany of anti-coal regulations, tax hikes, anti-second amendment bills, forced unionization bills and crazy new deficit spending. it's the same old mitch mcconnell, same operation. and he will block president obama's agenda. it's basically selling out the efforts of the progressives in this country, in my opinion. let's turn to senator bernie sanders of vermont, who is the only member of the democratic caucus to vote against the so-called filibuster reform. senator, good to have you with us tonight. i'd like you to respond to that fundraising letter of mitch mcconnell. i mean, are things going to change? are we going to see the same old mitch? >> look, at the end of the day, what that legislation did is made it easier for some cabinet appointees to take their jobs. that's important. it's going to speed up the process in the senate. that's important. but at the end of the day, ed, this country faces enormous economic crises. we've got to deal with global warming. we've got to deal with education. we have to deal with deficit reduction. we are not going to be able
't marginalize it all. >> say on the tax policy, they fought on raising taxes on the rich. 60% to 70% of the public agree with the president on that. so they're marginalized on a lot of policy matters, and the stupid comments don't come out. >> coming out for lower taxes are not going to get you beat. why don't they stick to the strong points? republicans looked ridiculous this week when they decided to go after hillary clinton, who is riding so high in the polls. why did they go after her at the very point she was at her strongest, they attacked. let's take a look. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable not to know of the request for security that really i think cost these people their lives. >> madam secretary, you let the consulate become
paycheck from higher social security taxes. ouch. next, $27 billion, that's how much taxpayers are going to lose on the government bailout from 2008. that is up from an estimate just a couple months ago. and finally, 44 years. that's how long deborah ford has worked for the postal service and she never took a sick day. the 64-year-old retires tomorrow. way to go. brian? >> brian: there is new signs of life in the housing market in the united states of america. the latest data shows home prices are actually inching up. so is now the right time to sell or down size to get out of debility? joining us now from nashville is dave ramsey. dave, are you optimistic things are turning around or is this just a regional turn around? >> well, all real estate is like politics, it's always regional it's always local. so we've had some markets that weren't hit nearly as hard by the recession and they've come back. some of them almost roaring back. we've got other areas of the country, and particular cities that are really still struggling. you just got to look around you in your particular area across t
taxes. i think one of the things that you're seeing is there is this change. i think it's happened much more quickly than a lot of people thought it would. mccain reverting back to the old mccain. lindsey graham who is facing probably a primary test down in south carolina, a state that is now 5% latino. one of the fastest-growing states in the terms of latino population down there. so i think we're going to see the sort of blood letting on the republican party along all of these issues, but i think at the end of the day mccain speaks for a majority of republicans who are looking at a way to reform their party and looking at these changing demographics. >> howard, the stakes are high for one republican in particular. senator marco rubio has been front and center on rush limbaugh's radio program making the case for immigration reform. while limbaugh praised him, he's also met his share of critics. see what david vitter told laura ingrham today. >> i love marco but i think he's amazingly naive on this issue. this is the same old formula we've dealt with before including when it passed in 1
the federal deficit in just ten years. and only through spending cuts and no new taxes whatsoever. to do this mr. ryan would have to cut every government operation by one-sixth or if he choose not to touch entitlements or defense, he would have to cut every government operation by almost 40%. this country would be plunged into a recession. and that's the ryan budget. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> mad house. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this eruption of self-doubt and humiliation in the republican party. suddenly after months of denial, you hear the growling and the gnashing of teeth. it's if as if we're hearing the cries from hell. peggy noonan says the grand old party is doomed if it keeps knocking hillary and refusing to recognize that excuse me for disrupting your illusion, president obama is the president and republicans in the house that once could still see through the dark know they really can't go on like this. margaret is not alone. down in baton rouge governor b
taxes. and he wanted to eliminate hospice care for medicaid patients. so this perspective on spending that the tea party brought certainly hasn't gone away. anytime you've got 36 united states senators who voted down sandy relief a couple days ago, you know that something has fundamentally changed about the way that republicans talk about government. so i think it's too early to say that they're dead, but all the things dana points to are good signs and signs of some kind of sanity seeping in. >> and dana, maybe it's all in a name. because i think what continues on for sure is this conservative domination particularly in republican primaries. i mean, here you've got mitch mcconnell being threatened now in kentucky and next year's election from the right. >> right. and the tea party's never really been an organized political force. and i'm using that as a shorthand for the far right that's been dominating the party right now. and as i point out in the column, that force really isn't going anywhere because of the redistricting, because of the way things are structured in the house. and

differently. he supported tax increases. what does that say to you? >> two things. he joins a growing list of senators whoa are frustrated with the senate. that's a problem for all americans. not one party or another, but it has to be functional again. two, split cally speaking, it's not a safe republican state. this is what people have to keep their eye on. republicans lean as the favorites in the beginning. nothing is a sure thing even in the state of georgia. >> what do you think? you study georgia closely. >> absolutely. one of the first states i campaign in. he said it has been a really outstanding conservative member before i got to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have
friend. >>> let's check in with anderson cooper. >>> billions of your tax dollars used and not much to show for it. this is outrageous. it was money wasted under the pretense of transforming a rail system. we're keeping them honest. they weren't such good pals. hillary clinton, president obama cap off a run as secretary of state on a sit-down interview on "60 minutes." >>> he was an inspiration to photo journalists around the world. tim heathering ton died doing what he does best, what happened in the midst of world. libya, 40 years old, he was a friend to this program. i'll speak to his close friend and colleague sebastian younger who put together an amazing documentary celebrating his life. that and more at the top of the hour. >>> our fifth story "outfront," changing the rules of the game. republicans in a number of states that president obama won in november want to change the way electoral votes in their states are distributed. currently all states except nebraska and maine award all electoral votes to one candidate. states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, and ohio are lo
reagan, you know, spoke so much about that and about taxes as well. >> well, i think that the real turning point for this president was that debt debate over the debt ceiling in july and august of 2011 and there an opportunity there and it came close, and i will not ascribe blame because there is probably enough going around when it looked like the president and john boehner were able to make a grand bargain, 3, $4 trillion in deficit reduction, it fell apart and rightly or wrongly it seems clear that the president and the white house decided at that point, we can't do business with these guys. boehner can't control the tea party element in his own house. and we're going to have to start running for president and running for president, pushing a liberal agenda. really from mid-summer, boehner says from labor day of 2011, he was very much running for president, pushing the liberal agenda. he was the protector of the middle class. and it is continued up through his re-election and now we see it in his inaugural address, very little talk about common ground. you know he basically dism
this in two buckets. one bucket is reducing costs. the other bucket is increasing taxes. if you think you can get this all done, to the amount we have to do with, let's say, a ten-year program, you're going to have to dig very deep. we need a third bucket and it is sitting right there and we should use it. it is energy. fracking, for example, has created 1.75 million jobs. billions and billions of dollars going to the states and federal coffers. we have more energy than anybody in the world and if we, in an environmentally friendly way, acquire it, go on the federal lands, do it in the right way, we'll get that extra piece of cash, and bring manufacturing and jobs back to the united states or create them in the united states because of our energy. >> the last four years of the obama presidency was marred by not great relationships between the business community and the administration. you are one of the key faces of the business community. have you reached out to the president or has he reached out to you since his election to say let's make this four years look very different? >> just rememb
